Game 55, When Royal challengers Bangalore (RCB) played against Delhi Capitals (DC) in a must win game for the both the teams to keep their playoffs hopes alive. Although the last few games of both the teams were not good and they have lost too many games in a row. Before the match both teams have 7 wins but it was not clear who will hold second place in the top four of playoffs.
But Delhi Capitals (DC) has clear the doubts with a victory against Royal challengers Bangalore by 6 wickets to cement the second place to play the first qualifier against Mumbai Indians (MI) the winner of the match will go straight into the final while losing team will get one more match in a eliminator match against the winning team of second qualifier. Having said, let us take a look at three players who flopped in a match against Delhi Capitals (DC).
Virat kohli (RCB)
The Captain itself isn’t performing then you can’t expect the young talents to make you win games. Take a look Virat kohli runs in the IPL 2020
14 Matches 460 Runs 46.00 Average
With the kind of consistency in the recent few years this run machine has proving everyone wrong with his own coaching manual techniques. In this year of Virat kohli has performed in much needed times to took the bail of team and helped them win the games.
But in a game against Delhi Capitals Virat kohli only managed to score 29 runs before getting out after building a solid partnership with Devdutt Paddikal. The wicket of Kohli set the breakdown for RCB and they have only managed to score only 153 Runs with the loss of 7 wickets in their allotted 20 overs.
AB de villiers
There is hype called if every other player failed to score then this 360 degree player take the game away with his unbelievable hitting around the park. With the Kohli Wicket AB de villiers joined Devdutt Paddikal and looking to set the world on fire with his sensational hitting deep into the stands.
But AB de villiers only managed to score 35 runs before getting run out to left his team in trouble. Royal challengers Bangalore don’t have strong middle order to score runs if their top three batsman failed to score. This loss only cost them to lose second place but in the coming games they have to with strong plans and strategy to go close to the trophy.
If the team can’t allow your frontline bowler to complete his spell of 4 overs. This clear the picture how weak this bowling division is in the season. There is no myth you can win games on the batting only there has to be strike bowler to balance the equation of team and helped them win the games.
Still this loss affect the Royal challengers Bangalore position but in the coming match of second qualifier of the tournament they will have the no choice either bat second or pile up massive amount of runs so that opposition can’t chase it.
